This firmware update adds even more functionality to the PS3 including the long awaited in-game XMB.
reading comments at GT i can see that xbox fanboys are getting nervous, and still try to nit pick stuff. Let me remaind you PSN is FREE
they are games consoles, why would anyone be nervous of another console getting features that they already had from the beginning?! I am pleased Sony FINALLY listened and are about to deliver on something that will greatly improve on the PS3 experience.
is what I want to know. THey should be angry. Angry that MS is charging them for what you could get for free on PS3.
Na not Nervous , excited yes. Us dual console owners are not like that buddy we love our machines more the merry , non fanboy here ;) 2 is always better than one , would'nt you love to have two girls instead of one , blonde in the Morning Burnett at night , ahhhhh it feels good
i somewhat agree its pretty obvious they could be offering this stuff for free too until it gets to the point that massive ammounts of people are switching or just buying ps3 instead of 360 i dont think msoft will take notice.
tru. They probably won't notice. But let's look at a typical next-gen gamer. Let's say he's old enough to buy his own stuff and consoles. Pays for XBL out of pocket and the whole nine. Now let's say he only owns a 360 and has been a victim of RROD at least twice. Now let's say his 3rd 360 is acting up, he's paid for XBL every year and receives no credit for time missed due to a broken 360, and now here comes Sony with all the features he's loved about 360. That's the kind of customer MS should be scared of losing. The kid that got a 360 for Christmas and who's parents pay for live is probably going to have a tough time explaining why he needs another 400 bucks for a system. Especially if that kid isn't working.
@^^^^^ lifeendz I bought both of my 360s, both RRODd at one point of time. Have been gold member and still will not pick up ps3 for: lack of better Multiplatform, online, poor library at the moment, nothing exciting about upcoming releases like R2 (dint like R1), nor a fan of mgs4 (played mgs 3 for 15 mins max), hate the 20 year old toy controller, dont hv HDMI on my sony hdtv so can't be bothered for poor colors of most games.
I respect your opinion but I think all you Xbox guys can stop with the whole "poor library" thing. The PS3 has a AAAA game that's exclusive. And there are a plethora of other games coming and out now (Uncharted, Ratchet, etc). You're not into Resistance? Fine. That's your perogative. Little Big looks great and White Knight is about to drop. Infamous is coming. I mean, the library is not poor at all. And toy controller? Hey buddy, I haven't paid a dime for rechargeable batteries or new batteries.
@HungPHAT true that, we need more of you kind around here, would be a much better site. unfortunately, it looks like owning both systems means you will be disagreed with on this site. how do you disagree with some1 saying they enjoy all of their consoles? wow n4g, wow
HD??? Yep! HD = Hard'Don!!!;-D Yep...i got one!!! ;-D
Q:... A: SPECTACULAR!!!!!
Yep!!!;-P I did get a bit worried when it said it was from gametraitors.con(gametrailers. com)the Video;-D
Are trophies included in Firmware 2.40? I can't quite make out what he's saying at the end of the video. Is he saying that Trophies are in the next update, or is he saying that they are not in the next update, but will be shown in the next video? EDIT: Nevermind. Just read the official info stating that trophies are indeed in the 2.4 update.
look at that!! even runs smoother then that crap that takes up half the frikin screen on the fixme!!
when is this coming out
"Firmware v2.40 will become available for download on July 2nd. We hope you enjoy these much-requested features, and look forward to your feedback" http://blog.us.playstation.... I can't wait.
Holy Sh*t !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is the reason why we should be glad that both PS3 and Xbox360 are around and competing with each other. If not for the Xbox360 and it's in game menu and achievements, this update would not be coming out. When the Playstation 3 first came out, Sony was very arrogant and thought they would be able to sell there system strictly based on brand name appeal. They were proven wrong and it has led to all these updates that have made the PS3 the console that it is today. Competition is what leads to innovation, and in the end, its us, the consumer that wins. I don't see why people don't see this, who's getting nervous or angry? I'm excited that this is finally coming to PS3. I'm excited to see how Microsoft will try to counter Home. It's good for everybody that these two companies are competing. P.S. Just as a side note, people make it sound like in-game menu, or acheivements, or in-game music, etc costs money on 360, its just the online gameplay part that costs money. All of the other features, including online integration of profile and friends list, etc, is all free. just kinda annoying and misleading.
ITS JUST ONLINE GAMEPLAY. Your forking $50 JUST FOR ONLINE GAMEPLAY thats something that you should own the right to with the purchase of your console and games not something you have to subscribe to. MS does some things right but they do to many things wrong for me.
GUYS DID YOU SEE HOW THE PLATSTATION.COM CAME UP WHEN MINE GET TO THAT SCRENE IT SAYS IS REQUIRES FLASH9 DOES THIS UPDATE HAVE FLASH9 IN IT JUST ASKING IF ANY BODY KNOWS PLEASE TELL ME THANKS ALLSO I GOT CHILLS WHEN I WATHCED THIS HAHAHAHA CANT WAIT SONY CONTINUES TO STILL [email protected]
